Lys: Her Own Devices

Aithne waited as the minutes went by, wondering if she'd mistaken herself, if the Guttersnipe hadn't seen her look, or hadn't understood it. Wulf and Master Lucius had moved on without even noticing she was there- it was like that a lot. She'd gotten used to it. Wulf had taken care of his master for many a year, and there was simply no place for her there. She would not be wanted until it was time to leave, whenever that would be. And she hoped to speak to the Guttersnipe before that.

With a small sigh, she slid down next to Cu and drew her knees to her chest. Cu snuggled close, nearly knocking her over before settling next to her, his muzzle resting on her feet.
